Anna Calvi - As A Man Lyrics




If I was a man in all but my body
Oh would I now understand you completely
If I was a man in all but my body

If I was walking and talking
As a man

Oh it is dark and then you will meet me
Something has changed, now I feel it discreetly
Oh now I feel, now I feel you completely

When you're not walking and talking
As a man

When you're not walking and talking
As a man

Closer, closer, closer
To one breath

When you're not walking and talking
As a man

When you're not walking and talking
As a man

When you're not walking and talking
As a man

  8. Domenico Pietropoli

    Talento assoluto!Forse troppo grande per i mediocri.

  9. Bryan Baumgartner

    I love this album. Although I enjoy the songs Alpha Away ans especially Eden for some reason

  10. Mark Anderson

    Anyone else hearing the Jeremy Kyle theme tune in this record???

  11. * GibsonS

    Way to go ripping off melody from Shirley Bassy... 'History Repeating'... And wow! Who would of thought there are 'alternate sexualities'?... Cmon kids, we've all known that since forever, nothing to see here.... Although it's always a thrill to 'challenge' us oldies, since we were never young and vital.... Lol

  12. gandolin66

    Appears to be a James Bond title song

    the ScreamS

    gandolin66 The “walking,talking,in the rain” is definitely Grace Jones but who cares Haha

  13. Sun Sea

  19. Sun Sea

    The best album & songs 2018 - 2019

  20. Thorne Hill

    Her tunes are actually banging only here cus of the peaky blinders trailer

  21. Wayward Mind

    I love the song but hate the grammar. "If I were a man" is correct. This "was" business bugs the shit out of me.

    Infernal Moondance

    Yeah women are shit at grammar.

  22. MrSinn

    Century of the woman:woman sings about being a man
    Fuck off

  23. Charmian O'Brien

    Hadn't heard of her. I just read her tweet on twitter that she has written her first soundtrack, to the new series (5) of Peaky Blinders no less!

    Thomas Norton

    can’t wait

    king bear

    Go buy her 3 albums , she's fabulous !

  24. Shtwaan E.

    Sounds like generic pop to me.

  25. grace cakes

    Her music isn’t like anything else I’ve heard there’s just so much emotion like I can feel it ugh she so good

  26. allah snackbar

    What a load of bollocks she takes herself too seriously, like that twat Lana del Rey

  27. Jason O'Connor

    🥰🥰🥰🥰

  28. Kurthi

    Gerwyn Price 💙

    king bear

    Fuck off

  34. Sanja Halmetoja

    Goddammit, this needs way more views! I love her style❤️

    66tenuta

    Well said

  35. SirYoba

    Кто, блядь, придумал шикарной талантливой бабе имидж портовой лахудры?

  36. Rubin4749

    I'm reading some people comparing her to Patti Smith---but to me that's nearly laughable---she's much closer style wise to David Bowie, and it's not even close on that count.

    Coldacre

    Rubin4749 PJ Harvey is the one she’s closest too. this could easily come off an album like “To Bring You My Love”

  37. Esudem

    C'est quoi ce clip sur le sexe à deux balles? Tu mérites mieux Anna, te laisse pas faire par le show business !

  38. Elisea Alisei

    Awesome !!! I LOVE Anna Calvi

  39. Muhammadjon Rahmatov

    Блин такая крутая песня но клип отстой, не клип а полное порнография ((((

  40. bonny wee thing

    I can't believe some people are disappointed with this. This is such a passionate, fiery tune, and the imagery is beautiful.

  41. Kevin Pincay

    The sounds is very similar to "History repeating" of Shirley Bassey

    abusabsi

    Yes, it is.... But I like it

    Giovanna Pignatelli

    totally agree!! <3

  42. Wibble Lord

    Does anyone else hear the Jeremy Kyle theme tune?

    Infernal Moondance

    Can't un-hear it now. Good thing I'll never listen to this shite again.

  43. MrsDbM

    Grace Jones called, she wants her tunes back.

  44. RIC Constituant ABROGATOIRE ILLIMITE RÉVOCATOIRE

    Anna, why are you waisted your talent and straight on slowing down to decadence...? Wake up ! You were born gifted, don’t listen your blame or destructive voice otherwise it will crush you down to the void. Alcool and drugs don’t go well with creativity (you love Bowie, listen to him when he speaks about his Berlin time).

  45. meedily

    If intersectionality had a songwriter.

  46. Jan Veidt

    Meh, too fruity!

  47. Marianne Ginalski

    She used to be classy, atypical, interesting, rockn'roll... and now she sounds poppy and average, she seems to sing for a lady gaga public, it is boring and predictable, a little ridiculous too, of course her voice is still stunning, she got talent, it is obvious, but what she does with it is another story.

    SkoczMiNaPukiel

    What Gaga and Anna's fans have in common is love for great voices, unique strong women, and possibly queerness, because the two artists are also queer, but it's a good thing. Their music is very different. She doesn't have to be rock'n'roller on every album, people's lives and moods change. I love listening to Hunter and Swimming Pool for relaxation 😛

  48. Chris v

    I recognise one of the male dancers from Bowie's Blackstar video! <3 <3

  49. Wedginald Maboy

    Camp-ometer has gone into overdrive 😲......and great tune too. Another one picked up from 6 music....

  50. Βάσια Π.

    she's on firreee

  51. Chip Kosboth

    That wailing, effortlessly rising voice... holy SHIT!

  52. Christine Power

    Album all killer no filler..I luff Anna .she is electric.emotional.powerful..beautiful

  53. albena shtereva

    Very good!

  54. 69v96

    Flash And The Pan - Walking In The Rain

  55. Audio & Stuff

    Great artist.....the refrain guitar riff reminds me of: "walking in the rain" by Grace Jones.

  56. darren foster

    Very cool 😎

  57. Ophelia Bells

    listened for the first time and her voice sounded familiar then after rewinding a certain part realized Poe.

  58. Francis Broka

    She's better than  ever!

  59. Alexander Kovaleski

    😎🥂

  60. Esoteric Ed

    One of the best songs of this decade.

  61. Cássio Martins

    This is one of the best videos/songs I've heard in awhile! Pure art.

  62. deadstar44

    After Janelle Monae, it seems that Anna Calvi wants to be the new "Tumblr icon" of the week to sell records...Shallow and derivative.

    witch house twerk team

    shut the fuck up

  63. Carol Alonso

    Everything is cool, except for the zombie girl that is walking next to her

  64. sayuri

    Am I the only one who can totally see a collab between Anna and Charlotte Gainsbourg?

    RIC Constituant ABROGATOIRE ILLIMITE RÉVOCATOIRE

    sayuri maybe...2 different universes...

  65. ChrisR_art student R.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions, always.
    But i love This new album and I think its very powerful and her feelings about many things are in this album. Listen or read her interviews she tells you her feelings and how those shaped Hunter. I can't pick a favourite as its all brilliant and I usually have a few favourites on a album but I find its really hard for me t pick one. I love Hunter !!!!

  66. Floydian_58

    Wonderful clip!! She's a genius. I love it!

  67. Erwin Klement

    🐶 Fantastic

  68. thedok

    Are there any tracks on the new album that aren't about being a lesbian?

    widM

    "Wish". It's my favourite on the album.

    SquidInA FruitBowl

    Swimming pool
    Eden
    Wish

    SkoczMiNaPukiel

    most of them don't sound gay especially for someone who doesn't know she's gay

  69. Christophe Lamoureux

    ME I'M A MAN WHO LOVES ONLY THE WOMEN AND I'M AS A WOMAN LIKE I'M FEEL LIKE AS WOMAN IN MY BODY,IN MY THOUGHT AND IN FASHION TO BE AND TO LIVE ANOTHER DREAMS IN MY HEAD BUT I WOULD BE WITH A WOMAN IN LOVE BUT I'M ALL TIMES ALONE WITHOUT LOVE AND NOBODY WANTS ME TRY CAUSE I DO SCARE TO THE WOMAN AND ME I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO FOR THAT IS GOOD LOVING WITH HER I HAVE NO SOLUTION AND I'M DESPERATE FOR ALL MY LIFE!!!

  70. Anto Vado

    my three favourite tracks from the album are now brilliantly visualised. Anna, you're great!

  71. Tung Tobak

    Vocals are still excellent but please bring back the big guitars, the musical side of this I find generic and repetetive. Don't be radio pop.

    MrBungle82

    Have you listened to the whole album? The guitars are on the spot!

    Tung Tobak

    No, just the videos.

    ChrisR_art student R.

    @MrBungle82 yes the guitars are still there if you listen to Anna's amazing new album, you will hear them

    SkoczMiNaPukiel

    pop doesn't have to be bad and this is not radio pop, and artists can change, I love her forever 😛

  72. mizzcorrie ancone

    excellent production and you are amazing!!!!!

  73. Francesca Sapia

    divina <3

  74. Christopher Brown

    Ive always admired calvis musical talent - her earlier work was classy and felt like a nod to great artists like patti Smith etc

    I think her new direction however is too faux modern - collaborating with this director has made her image super hipster - a nowness/dazed template has been placed on her videos - sucking out the originality she has - music is still cool, gone a bit poppy but it still delivers

    I think she ought to find a less hipster, pretentious filmmaker for her next videos and bring back the elegance and class her work deserves

    (Understandable this happened - market forces)

    Christopher Brown

    @Tony Brown all good, each to their own - I disagree that you read it carefully 'as I do all thing' suggests you don't pay attention, nothing ever is personal on YouTube needless to say - peace

    Sami Pratt

    Because having a few dancers while she stands still playing guitar like the Suzanne & I video was *so* original 🙄

    Sami Pratt

    @Dan Hunter Not read any of her recent interviews then

    Sami Pratt

    @Dan HunterShe's 100% out and if your take on her music is third party advice on publicity as opposed to her writing and singing as the gay woman that she is then it says more about you than her.

    Sami Pratt

    @Dan Hunter Why didn't you just say you hate music dude.

  75. rabit818

    Omg Anna is Denerys! Anna will rule the seven kingdoms.

  76. SmilemanChanel

    Walk in the rain then, Anna!

  77. Locker72

    Not comparable to the first but still good

  78. Franck Shinkaretzky

    c'est nullissime , mais bon c'est l'époque qui veut ça ..

    Tom L

    quel gâchis

    Aquawatereau.

    Qu'est-ce que vous nous conseillé, alors ?

    Franck Shinkaretzky

    de la même artiste , Hunter , qui lui est un titre formidable et le clip troublant . Mais ça c'est de la daube .

    Tom L

    Anna Calvi c'était ça, Love Won't Be Leaving' - Anna Calvi au Trianon de Paris en avril 2011, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=booapgUgHL0&t=260s

  79. Veli-Matti Andreas Saloniemi

    I much prefer the older material. Better musically and lyrically as well. Anna is great still.

  80. Свешникова Л.

    Anna you’re the best

  81. Sameer M

    This is just magnificent

  82. Stephen follower of christ

    She's a devil

    toffee1234100

    stephen the red the detentor of talent

    Joseph Gaudet

    Damn right she is :)

  83. Rennan

    Here before 1k views

  84. Alessandro Ferretti

    This album deserves way more attention

    Joseph Gaudet

    Alessandro Ferretti Exactly! How are there only 2.8k subs on her vevo? She's a fully realized artist and Hunter is amazing! Do people not know about her? Is America just slow and she is huge in Europe? I mean she did a duet with Byrne...she isn't small league. So confused...

    ChrisR_art student R.

    I agree, she is very real and very very talented !!!

    meedily

    From psychologists?

  85. Primitive In The Extreme

    ♫ ♥ ♫

  86. John Duckworth

    Nice video , nice performance but it would have been better to avoid the old walking and talking cliche.

    Joseph Gaudet

    John Duckworth Maybe, but it works for me. She incorporates the phrase in the song in such a classic and artful way that it doesn't stick out as out of place.

    John Duckworth

    @Joseph Gaudet A fair point. If I had one tenth of Ms Calvi's song writing and compositional abilities I'd consider that good. She is quite brilliant.

    ChrisR_art student R.

    @Joseph Gaudet agreed

    Frank McFarlane

    Its eh, kinda the lyric.

  87. Dovilė Abromavičiūtė

    amazing voice, mediocre tune

    Raquel Matos

    It's more rhythmic, I understand what you mean even though I really like it; its beautiful pop to me hehe :)

    Joseph Gaudet

    Mediocre? Bowie would have sung this!

    MammaApa

    I agree. Bring back the big guitar.

    thedok

    Not in his best years he wouldn't.

    widM

    +thedok But 80s Never Let Me Down Bowie would have sung this. :)

  88. Osobliwość

    As a Anna...

    ManinManchester

    Manna from heaven

  89. Lirik K

    She's a genius..

    thedok

    She isn't.

    Goran Mitrović

    No, she isn't.

    king bear

    She is indeed

    Infernal Moondance

    Women aren't geniuses, that's why she wants to be a man.
